Measuring Neck Size

You want it to fit well, don't you? Then please read this! :)

We size our products by the dog's neck size, because buckles can be different sizes. So our products are adjustable to fit the neck sizes we list. Therefore, to measure properly, don't measure a current collar tip-to-tip, that is not your dog's neck size. If you have a well-fitting current collar with a snap release type buckle, note where the buckle ends meet each other when clipped together, then EXCLUDE the portion of the buckle that is inserted into the other end (the "prongs" or "tongue" basically) to get your dog's approximate neck measurement. (Method 1)

Or for the most accurate measurement, wrap a flexible (sewing type, not rigid metal) tape measure, or ribbon or string (just nothing that stretches like elastic) around your dog's neck while standing, and tighten it where and how you would like the collar to fit, noting the point of overlap with a marker. You should be able to fit about two to three fingers inside the collar, snug but not too tight or too loose, so it will not pull off over the dog's ears/head when fastened. Then lay the ribbon/string against a tape measure or yard stick and measure to the mark you made. This is your dog's actual neck size, which you should use when ordering our products. (Method 2)
